What is Microdermabrasion?
Microdermabrasion is the process of rejuvenating the skin through careful exfoliation of the outer skin layer. The treatment exfoliates the damaged and dead skin cells. This instantly clears the pores and exposes the fresh underlayer of the skin. The objective is to stimulate collagen production, which acts as a healer and rejuvenator, which is why microdermabrasion can be used for a variety of skin conditions.
A microdermabrasion treatment takes approximately 1 hour, at the end of which serum is applied to minimize dryness and flaking and encourage the healing process. Most patients experience tenderness, mild swelling, and redness that disappear within a few hours.
The cost of the treatment varies from $100 to $200, with the average cost being around $136. The technique used, size of the treated area and the depth of microdermabrasion are factors to consider in determining the cost of each session. Additionally, depending on your needs, you may require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, such as eliminating acne scars. Our experts at Colorado Skin & Vein will design a treatment plan accordingly during your first consultation about what to expect.
